Cookin a Bird

For the past several Thanksgivings we've always flown to San Francisco to gather with family at Russell's grandmother's house. Although going to California is always a fun thing, I'm happy to be staying home this year so I can cook up a righteous feast. I hate to say it, but I'm terribly picky when it comes to Thanksgiving food. I always expect it to be amazing and no one in the family does it like I do. So I'm excited that I get to pull out the culinary big guns and go for it. We are having a few of our closest friends over this year too to help us celebrate...it's gonna be great.

We're cleaning out the garage for Thanksgiving, woo-hoo! I'm not cooking a bird, we may sidle up at my brother-in-law's or possibly just eat Chinese food here (kinda like The Christmas Story, heehee!). Oh well, this year I think I'd be more thankful for a cleaned out garage than a big dinner with lots of dishes! Can a person be a Scrooge for Thanksgiving?

Being in Australia, I don't usually celebrate thanksgiving, unless my American friends are feeling overtly generous.

Hope you have a grand day, and there is nothing like roasting up a bird.

I don't know about your being the only one that can cook up Thanksgiving dinner that makes the mouth water! lol Last year, Lee and I prepared our dinner that tastes just like the old "Granddaddy" Thanksgiving meals...it was amazing how the flavors really brought back memories.
This year? Well, we aren't doing traditional. Lee decided to make shrimp, finger sandwiches of asparagus and cucumbers and deviled ham. I want traditional, so if I'm going to have it, I have to cook it! lol

I probably won't go to all that trouble just for me, however. I will miss the leftovers...sniff sniff.

I don't know mom...we might have to have a cook off lol! Btw, where did those recipes come from? Were they Grandmama's? Or were they influenced by Gussy or Ethel or both?

Too bad Lee doesn't want to go traditional this year. Left overs are the best part!
